Issues

​​Education

One of Wisconsin’s most valuable assets is our public schools.  Increasing government funding and financial aid is essential for all levels of Wisconsin public education.  Continuing to divert resources away from public schools to expand private school vouchers is hurting our public schools.  Revenue caps on school districts have taken away local control from our elected officials.  Fair compensation for teachers and support staff is a must to continue attracting great teachers to our schools.


Jobs

For a strong Wisconsin we need an economic policy that pays a fair wage for a hard day's work.  Family sustaining jobs must be made a priority in order to support and grow our middle class.  We need to encourage small business creation and continue supporting the ones we already have.  It is time to stop supporting companies who use Wisconsin dollars to ship jobs overseas.


Labor

All workers have a right to living wages, good benefits and safe, clean workplaces.  The ability of a worker to join a union and bargain collectively is imperative if we want Wisconsin to have a robust middle class.  We need to ensure that pensions and other retirement accounts are managed responsibly so people can feel secure in their retirement.   


Agriculture

​We need to continuing supporting agriculture programs in our local schools and increase funding for UW-system ag research.  Finding new uses for farm commodities and developing alternative crops will preserve Wisconsin’s agricultural legacy and ensure agriculture will continue to play a major role in our economy moving forward.
